Subjectmount from debian to 44bsd, chown bug report?
Hello everyone.  I am booting up into a bootable Knoppix 3.2 (Debian Linux)
CD-R ( and trying to mount my FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE partition.

The working command-line is:
`mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/hda2 /mnt/fbsd`

At one time I was naturally able to read/write files to the partition once
it was mounted, but then I chowned the root directory to "knoppix." Now
here is what's happening:

# whoami ; mount | grep 44bsd
/dev/hda2 on /mnt/test type ufs (rw,ufstype=44bsd)

# ls -al /mnt | grep knoppix
drwxr-x--x 25 knoppix root 1024 Dec 18 22:10 /mnt/test

# grep ufs /proc/filesystems

# chown root /mnt/test
chown: changing ownership of `test': Read-only file system

The error above contradicts the "mount" info, namely, the "rw" part!!

Is this a BUG? Might a fix be to give the user "knoppix" the ability
to mount? Please help me, someone...?
